Solitary confinement

If I could
I’d put myself in solitary confinement every once in a while. Metaphorically speaking.


Four walls around me
to keep rational thoughts out
to keep demanding people out
to keep negative energy out
to keep old habits out

Four walls around me
nothing penetrates them
nobody gains access
nowhere to go
nothing to get done

Four walls around me that close me in
curiosity what I might find in me
independence from others
openness in my heart
silence so I can hear my own voice

Feels like coming home.


Today was such a day. Offline. Me-time. Nature. The sound of the ocean. Wind in my hair. No plans. Just being. I did not know how much I had needed this!
